A Taste of Summer with Art Presence

Yesterday’s Taste of Summer opening celebration of the Britt Festival was a colorful…artistic…and hot! way to welcome the 2013 concert season and summer in Jacksonville. There was art all over town, and Art Presence led the way. We know a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ll keep my typing brief (it’s another beautiful day out there today!) and post the pictures I took of our artist members making sure art had a presence in town and the kids who participated in the art activities we presented on the lawn in font of the gallery. For more pictures of the day’s arts & culture color, please see my live blog post at Art Matters! And if you happen to see a picture of yourself or your own art, please click on any picture in this post or the one at Art Matters! to see the large version and download that beauty!  (FYI – when live blogging, time is of the essence, so the pictures there didn’t get as much attention as the ones posted here, but there are more of them.)
